. when you look at the major party candidates and this year's cycle, what's missing in the debate and the dialogue? and what do you wring to the table -- what do you bring to the table? >> guest: well, how about truth for starters. the notion that both obama and romney are arguing over who's going to spend more money on medicare when we need to have a raging debate and discussion in this country on how we slash medicare spending because if we don't, um, i believe that we're going to find ourselves in the midst of a monetary collapse as a result of continuing to borrow and spend money to the tune of 43 cents out of every dollar that we spend. >> host: so what are you seeing out there on that particular issue? what's your prescription, pardon the expression. >> guest: well, i oversaw the reform of medicaid in new mexico when i was governor of new mexico. we took it from a fee-for-service model to a managed care model. we saved hundreds of millions of dollars, we set up better health care networks for the poor in new mexico. i believe if the federal government would have block grante

they don't start out being, an obama proposal or a romney proposal or a democratic proposal or a republican proposal. what i'm more, i am less interested in exactly what is said in the debates the next four years when whoever wins says in the week or two after the election. to me, that's the time to step up and do the broader leadership and be tougher. >> what would you like to hear president obama say, either before or after the election? talk about romney, what about obama? too if your view as mine is that we're not going to have a deal that doesn't have both revenues and spending and the biggest obstacle is on the revenue side and that, as i do believe and i have asked a lot of democratic senators if my perception is correct and they say yes, and that is, that republicans continue to believe that at the end of the day in the 11th hour democrats will relent again as they did in 2011 and at the end of 2010. frankly one of the things the president has to do is to make it crystal clear that he is damn serious and he is not going to accept a deal that doesn't have both revenues and

a way, are you doing anything to get into the debate cycle with obama and romney? >> host: there is a similar question with twitter. >> guest: i am excluded from the first debate. the commission that determines who gets into the debate is the presidential debate commission which is private made up of republicans and democrats with no interest to have a third voice on stage. we have filed three lawsuits to get me on stage based on other third party candidates but there does not seem to be much hope but we filed on antitrust grounds that had not been done before. >> host: how much does the debate matter? >> >> they are tantamount to be having ed chance at winning. without a debate you can close the lid to win the election. is winning getting enough votes to cause one of the other two to give more than just lip service? potentially. this is a victory every single day. i am heartened by the fact there are so many people speaking with of broad brush stroke the majority of americans consider themselves fiscally responsible, as socially excepting. i am in their broad brush category so i do
